    I am delighted that Yellowstone will get a new waste water treatment plant. However, as many Yellowstone visitors are aware, the majority of the “outhouses” available in Yellowstone are disgusting. I wonder if upgrading those disgraceful buildings will be a part of the plan. In the Canadian camping areas even ten years ago, many of these buildings were solar and composting facilities. I would love to see Yellowstone try to upgrade in an ecological manner.
